…. We have discussed the latest trends in marketing and we understand the true power of Visual Content and how it can drive your brand, organization, or company to engage with an audience.

Social Media becomes more and more important as the fight in the search engines is not easily predictable and for the main reason that people, like you and me, got tired of all this writing content volcano that changed our lives during the last years.

Now it\s the “Time” to create beautiful images, videos, infographics, live chats, and other visual or entertaining material.

That is why I have started to blog about all these great tools that can be found online and that most of the times are free to use.

 

 

Ribbet…a Photo Editing Application that Rocks!

 

Website: Ribbet

Main slogan: Edit like a Pro.

With Ribbet you can:

  • Align your photos in a classic grid collage
  • Generate a shape made up of repeating images
  • Start from scratch. Pick canvas size, color, and background.
  • Create holiday cards with the print-ready templates.

The canvas can be used in light or dark version.

Editing Options:

  • Exposure, Colors, Sharpen, Resize
  • Choose from various picks

Enough with the words…Visual Action, please 

 

 

Photo Collage

 

I uploaded 4 images that I had already created for my posts inside the Ribbet app. I dragged and dropped them in the 4 preset spots in the editor and in seconds my collage was ready.

Then you can save and download to your computer or even share it socially directly from the app.

Premium Features

 

Some of the features, effects, icons, designs, stickers are premium resources and you need to upgrade. The Free version is extremely useful but has restrictions and of course, the premium membership unlocks everything.

When I had signed up with Ribbet, 7-8 months earlier I had the privilege to use the premium version for one month or so.

Of course, the premium cannot be compared to the free version not only for the variety and the number of designs and effects but most importantly for the “Layers Function”, that can transform the app into a mini Photoshop.

Upgrade Benefits

  1. Ad-Free editing
  2. Unlimited editing history
  3. New Features coming

Packages

  • $4.95 / month
  • $19.95 / 6 months
  • $29.95 / annually

Milk & Print

 

A collaboration between PQ Blackwell and Ribbet.A section like Zazzle.

Final Take

 

That is Ribbet and I believe you should add it to your catalog of online tools. In combination with the Online logo maker, Canva, Snappa, and other design apps you can create awesome artwork.

You can use the free version for as long as you like and the premium can be considered a very affordable solution for those that can not purchase expensive software.

    Hi Tasos,
    This looks like a pretty versatile photo editing app. I personally use Photoshop to do post-processing on my photos, but I think most people won’t need those kinds of features.
    Ribbet is a great site for basic effects and photo filters, though, and is good for general purposes.
    Great review of the application, keep up the good work!

      Welcome Ian , Photoshop can not be compared with online applications but Ribbet does a good job in helping people with no experience perform simple tasks very fast.

      I wanna thank you for visiting my blog and for your participation in the comments.Good luck with your photos.

    This photo app has a lot of great features. I use Serif and Adobe Elements and some others too and what you have seems to compare. The pricing seems really fair too. Does the app have tutorials to show you how to use the various features for the premium plan?

      Welcome Julie , I believe there is information available but I did not come across any guides or tutorials.But I have to say that the app is pretty easy to use , drags , drops and other very common moves.If you already use such applications you won’t have any problem at all.

      There is always the forum in which you can ask for help or you can ask me anytime.

      Thank you for visiting my blog and for sharing your thoughts.

    Wow – I love these types of apps and could spend for hours playing with them. As you have demonstrated they can be used for cards, marketing purposes, or just plain art to display and add a bit of creativity to your life! Will definitely look into this app further now – you have me intrigued 🙂

    Thank you

    Yes! I was looking for a proper editing app for some time now. A lot of ppl use Instagram to filter pictures, but I don’t like it because…well I just don’t like it. The text option on Mother’s days card is just what I was looking for. I do have a question though: if Chrome can open pics from Google+ , Facebook…is it possible to use Ribbet as Instagram (uploading edited pics straight to those social networks, or do you need to upload it separately)? Thank you!

      Welcome Kat , I am not familiar with Instagram as I am not using yet.I know it is very popular but I did not had the time to prepare for this network.

      But I believe you can’t use Ribbet to send your images directly to Instagram.You can download and send them separately.

      Thank you for this visit and for your participation , I hope you like Ribbet…and good luck.
